Here we are once again, this time for the 2009 Orlando Go Tournament @ UCF. I hope those of you that went to the 2007 and 2008 tournaments will come again, and that as many new players as possible join us. There will be competition for players of any strength from all around the state [and sometimes beyond]. For both the last tournaments we achieved 30 participants, but both Orlando and Florida as a whole have grown since last year [also gas doesn’t cost a billion dollars]. This time I want to blow that figure out of the water 🙂 Anyway, until that time I thought I should get all the information straight with everyone. Here is the tournament flyer, so please pass it along to anyone who might be interested.
Like last year, you will have to register with the AGA either at the door or beforehand[see details here]. However, this year we’re going to have a few differences, this one everyone should like. Primarily, there will be no tournament fee this time [you still have to pay AGA membership fees]. Why/How you might ask? Well, the Go Club, UCF Chapter has just become an official club here at UCF. That means that while we can reserve the rooms for no cost because of our club, charging an entrance fee is forbidden. They told me that they’ll still allow people to register for the AGA since I won’t keep the money, and any 100% optional donations, but that’s all.
Additionally, because this room is being reserved under our club, I am liable for any damages that may be incurred upon the room or yourselves. While this would certainly be a rare occurrence, please don’t break any bones while you’re there 🙂 Also, please leave the room we are in completely undamaged; UCF will fine me a few hundred dollars if we damage it!!
For the last two tournaments, the primary cost that the entrance fee repaid was the room reservation cost. Without that cost, my only costs will be food and a few more prizes [most were donated]. We’ll be having an optional “donation bucket”, which they told me was fine as long as I clearly signaled that it was 100% optional.
Anyway, I hope to see all of you there!! If for any reason you need to contact me, you can reach me at Masterman535@gmail.com. Also make sure to check out our tournament blog at http://ogt09.blogspot.com, where I’ll be listing any updates, as well as details, whose coming, and other pertinent information.
***PLEASE SEND ME YOUR COMPLETED REGISTRATION FORM EITHER ONLINE OR IN THE MAIL; I NEED TO KNOW WHO IS COMING***
See ya’ll there!!
